A visit to St. George’s church to answer the question “Why Easter?”
On Wednesday, Barnowls and Puffins visited St. George’s church in Gravesend to learn more about Easter.
The church welcomed Year 5 with plenty of surprises! First, a short game to put the children in the mood. The two Jasons had a race, using their noses to push an easter egg across the finish line, much to the delight of their classes! We learned a bit more about what was happening in Jerusalem during the time when Jesus visited the city, before the crucifixion. The children shared their ideas and had a clearer understanding of the Easter story.
After this focussed task, we had the opportunity to engage in a fun questionnaire. The children were given a paper with the words “True” and “False” and they had to use it to answer the questions shown on a screen. One of the questions was “Last Easter, there were 10,000,000 chocolate eggs made; true or false?” and we were all surprised to learn that there were actually about 80,000,000 made!!
Before we left the church, the children made a cross using beads and strings.
Ask the children how they made it, maybe they can make one for you!
